Description: New York, Charles Scribner's Sons. 1956, First Edition. Hard Cover with dust jacket. Ill.: Richard Floethe. Unpaginated, 10" H. A [R] on copyright page. Light blue boards, with dark blue decoration on front/rear, dark blue lettering on spine. "In this charming picture book a boy sits day dreaming of all the things he would do if he were captain of the old sailing ship over the fireplace. In his imagination he goes, like Columbus, to lands unknown and far away, seeing these places as a boy might think of them. Jewels of India - camels of Arabia - Indians on a nameless island - it is all a thoroughly childlike dream of adventure. The reader may go with him, quite rapidly, and then go back to see all the fascinating details in the pictures." Gift inscription of front free endpaper, light edge wear at top/bottom of spine and at corners. Dust jacket is clipped at top of front flap, light edge wear and one or two tiny chips and small tear, small label glue residue on front panel, very light browning - mainly on spine and flap-folds, faint water stain at bottom edge near spine - shows mostly on inside surface. Very Good/Very Good-.
